(aka the brief case of chefs!)
Just like a good chef knife … dull was not an option! From the design decisions to fabric choices and sourcing the right leather and grommets, there was a lot of behind the scenes crafting, collaborating and prototyping (not to mention FUN) that went into the making of our knife roll.
Our knife bag is hand-crafted! By hand crafted, we mean each bag is locally sewn in Calgary, AB. On our most recent batch, Cam, our co-founder, punched every rivet and Esteban, our production manager, jumped in to help hammer the grommets!
The grommets aren’t just there to help keep your knives in place! We also wanted them to add a little extra special detailing. So, like a perfectly paired dinner, we’ve chosen from antique brass, vintage gunmetal grey and sleek matte black grommets to match the selvedge denim and waxed canvas fabrics.
Knives are sharp and protecting them (and you, while carrying them) is critical! So, finding a sturdy, durable but soft premium leather to act as a knife protector was important. And you just never know when you’ll bump into a leatherworker! On a rather random trip to Los Angeles, Cam met Carlos while grabbing a beer at a local bar. Carlos turned out to be a super cool (and very talented) dude, and now, our leather is sourced from some of the most skilled tanners in Mexico. When Carlos is not collaborating with Medium Rare, check out his company Red Hawk Boots.
Our knife roll safely and securely holds up to six 12” chef knives. Curious about the typical knives you might find in a chef’s roll? We asked a few chefs about must haves you’ll find in their knife roll:
